Norfolk Light Rail

10 12 2007

In response to “Light Rail Vs. the Smart Car” (December 1, 2007) A fleet a Smart cars, while being less expensive, would not solve anything. This plan would essentially double the amount of cars on the road and in the garage. Size doesn’t matter. They are still cars on the road. The key to successful long term transportation is to increase efficiency. A smart car my get 68 mpg, but it still burns gasoline. What part of the electric light rail burns gasoline? The power is most likely generated at the Surry Nuclear Power Station or the Lake Anna Nuclear Power Station, neither of which create emissions. And besides, do you know what it would be like exiting a Norfolk garage at rush hour if there were TWICE the cars in it???
